Kobai, Chapter 43: Osono and Keyamura Rokusuke - Handsome scene of the great martial artist Keyamura Rokusuke learning that his teacher, Yoshioka Ichimisai, has been slain. Ichimisai's daughter Osono has been seeking his killer, disguised as a monk while traveling. She mistakenly believes Rokusuke to be the killer, first attacking him, but once she explains her mission, he realizes he knows the identity of the real murderer. Here, he frowns angrily, pushing up the sleeve of his sleeve and gripping a white towel. She kneels behind him holding a blossoming plum branch, still wearing a black monk's mantle over his kimono. Nice expressive figures with fine detail in the hair.
